Making Purpose Work explores why it's difficult for people to change. Over a four year period, Franchee Harmon took time out from the work she had been doing as a strategic consultant to companies and venture capital firms. During that time, she explored the issues preventing change in the lives of those of us seeking to do more than just work 40 plus hours a week. What she found was that five forces continually stop us from leading lives better than the ones we currently have, chief among these stumbling blocks is fear.

Ms. Harmon doesn't seek to tell the reader how to use these forces to create change, instead shares insight she hopes the reader will make his or her own to do the challenging work it takes to bring about real change in one's life.

From the Inside Flap:

This thoughtful and ambitious book explores the challenges of change, evolution, and growth. Stepping away from the idea of purpose as principles that define the reasons for a company's existence, how and why individuals in organizations work to create meaning is explored.Using examples from popular culture and drawing on studies from the sciences, Making Purpose Work explores how we go about creating meaning using five elements of purpose: self-identity, expectations, unity, fear, and instincts. With new insights into how beliefs impact our actions, the book communicates how these elements work together to help us form happy, nurturing, enduring, and productive relationships within our environments.
